KS2 Orienteering Day, November 2017

The KS2 children had a very active day learning lots of orienteering skills at school with Mr Flint, and then trying them out at Haldon Forest.  They worked in small teams racing against against one another other and used maps to find the twelve markers hanging from branches, fences and seats.  The winning team consisted of three Year 3 boys - well done to them.  It was a fantastic day full of activity and fun.

Class 3 design Battery-powered Games! November 2017

The Class 3 children have been looking at electricity in their science lessons and took on the challenge of designing their own games powered by batteries.  The resulting games were original, interesting and great fun to play as you can see from these photographs of Mr Arnold playing two of them.

Year 6 Sport and Swim Afternoon, June 2017

Our Y6 children had a fabulous afternoon at Dunsford School.  They were there for a swim and free play with pupils from Hennock and Chudleigh Knighton schools as part of their transition to secondary school.  They had a great time splashing in the pool using the floats and inflatables, and also enjoyed using the equipment on the field and playing in the woods.

Machine-Building by Class 3, May 2017

The Class 3 children learnt about different types of force such as gravity, air resistance, friction and upthrust during their science week.  They also looked at the workings of simple machines which use levers, springs, gears and pulleys.  They then made their own simple machines using a variety of different mechanisms and demonstrated them to the rest of the pupils.  Some, such as Sophie's rubber-band-powered car transporting a Sylvanian family, worked really well!

May the Force be with You! Science Week in Class 3, May 2017

The Class 3 children have been learning all about forces during their science week.  They learnt about the force of gravity and discovered that they would only weigh one sixth of their Earthly weight if they were on the moon!  They also carried out a number of investigations into different forces such as friction, the upthrust of water and air resistance.  The photographs show the children investigating the factors that result in the most efficient spinners.
